Forum: opensource_audio Subject: need help swapping contents of a new audio archive

I am a newbie and need a little help. On August 2 I made I posted a collection of speech-enhanced versions of the "Greatest Speeches of the 20th Century" archive (Original: https://archive.org/details/Greatest_Speeches_of_the_20th_Century - enhanced version: https://archive.org/details/GreatestSpeechesEnhanced ).

Unfortunately I made the file names inadequately descriptive. Rather than manually rename everything, I created a second archive with exactly the same content, but with better names (https://archive.org/details/ConcessionStandRichardM.Nixon1962). Two problems:
1) When I copied in the new archive, I noticed too late that it auto-populated the archive's meta-data with a poor identifier: "ConcessionStandRichardM.Nixon1962". That will be confusing to users, especially when armed just with a URL
2) I didn't realize that only admin can delete an archive.

So please, could admin either delete to the first enhanced archive and relabel the second with a better identifier (e.g. "GreatestSpeechesEnhanced" ) OR
replace all the files in the first enhanced archive with the files from the second, and delete the second.

Apologies and any thanks for cleaning up my little mess.

Chris

If you are set on using the "GreatestSpeechesEnhanced" identifier, you will need to replace the files in that item. Click on Edit on the left the side under the speaker and choose "Change the files" on the next page. You only need to worry about the files you uploaded - delete those and upload the replacements. Then click Update item at the bottom.

If you just want to keep the second (but renamed), tell us what you want to use as the identifier and we'll rename it and delete the first. You cannot use "GreatestSpeechesEnhanced" even if we remove it - that one is gone.

Let's keep the second, but rename it to "GreatestSpeechesBabbleLabs" please, and delete the first.
